The Difference Between True Supporters and Glory Supporters.
When their club wins a game.
Real Supporter: Hell yeah! I knew they could do it! (This may vary, as some people are more excitable than others.)
Glory Supporter: YES. WE ARE THE BEST. NO ONE CAN BEAT US. FUCK ALL THE OTHER CLUBS.
When their club loses a game.
Real Supporter: Well, shit. This fucking blows, but hopefully we can use this as a stepping stone to better ourselves. Every game, win or lose, is a learning experience. (Some may also cry, depending on the game. Again, it depends on the person.)
Glory Supporter: What the fuck is this shit? We need to get new players, because these guys obviously don’t know what the hell they’re doing. Why did we buy that guy? He made one mistake, so he needs to go. He shouldn’t be playing football!
When a Real Supporter comes into contact with a Glory Supporter.
Go. Get the fuck out. You do not deserve to associate with us if you’re going to act like that. We’re going to lose some games or competitions - shit fucking happens. We can’t win every single thing, every single time. If you can’t stand behind the team through their highs AND their lows, then you can go like some other sport. Being a football supporter means showing you’re proud your club, regardless of whether they’re “winners” or not. We don’t expect them to play perfectly during every single game, because they’re fucking human. Humans make mistakes. The only thing we ask of them is that they do their best. And if they have a bad game for whatever reason, we stand behind them and show them that we’re still there, regardless of the score. Because that’s what real supporters do. We SUPPORT. During the good times AND the bad times.
